Common Causes | Load & Securement
Accidents resulting from unsecured cargo falling from a truck can result in injury or fatality to other drivers. Thousands of accidents involving large trucks have resulted because goods have been improperly secured or secured by damaged straps, bracing, cradles, or other various tie down materials.
To prevent accidents caused by load or securement issues, there are specific rules and regulations that motor carriers, drivers and loaders must follow when loading and securing cargo. Certain types of containers also have special rules during transportation that must be followed.
We specialize in the laws and regulations governing loading and securing cargo as materials are being transported. Violations of these regulations can be proof of negligence against the truck driver or motor carrier.
In all large truck cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries.
